Great ride - poor mechanical function
By kgal37 on
Vehicle1997 Ford Taurus G 4dr Sedan
ReviewExcellent acceleration and handling -
good quiet ride. Mechanically the
worst car I ever owned - needed
transmission replaced at 39,000 miles -
under three years old, and since have
replaced transmission sensor three
times. Engine shot at 97,000 miles.
The car had overheated. Seems that
engine light is always on and many
small electrical problems.
At transmission repair shop, many
Ford's -Taurus and Windstar in for
repair - this transmission should have
been recalled. Also, per mechanic, the
Taurus has problems with Crankshaft and
Best FeaturesExcellent for shorter trips. Engine provides good power and ride is extremely smooth.
Worst FeaturesTransmission issues were not addressed - the Dealership ignored frequent requests to check the transmission amongst complaints about delay between time of acceleration to start of car.
